XCVII. Razmisli o sumnjama koje su u srca naroda u ovoj zemlji ulili…

1 Razmisli o sumnjama koje su u srca naroda u ovoj zemlji ulili oni koji Bogu pridružuju suparnika. “Je li ikako moguće,” pitaju, “bakar pretvoriti u zlato?” Reci, mojega mi Gospoda, moguće je. Međutim, ta tajna leži skrivena u Našem Znanju. Otkrit Ćemo je onomu komu Mi hoćemo. Tko god sumnja u Našu moć, neka upita Gospoda Boga svojega, da mu On otkrije tajnu, i uvjeri ga u njezinu istinu. Činjenica da bakar može biti pretvoren u zlato po sebi je dovoljan dokaz da zlato, na sličan način, može biti pretvoreno u bakar, ako su oni od onih koji razumiju ovu istinu. Moguće je prouzročiti da svaki mineral stekne gustoću, oblik, tvar svakog drugog minerala. Znanje o tome s Nama je u Skrivenoj Knjizi. Consider the doubts which they who have joined partners with God have instilled into the hearts of the people of this land. “Is it ever possible,” they ask, “for gold to be transmuted into copper?” Say, Yes, by my Lord, it is possible. Its secret, however, lieth hidden in Our Knowledge. We will reveal it unto whom We will. Whoso doubteth Our power, let him ask the Lord his God, that He may disclose unto him the secret, and assure him of its truth. That copper can be turned into gold is in itself sufficient proof that gold can, in like manner, be transmuted into copper, if they be of them that can apprehend this truth. Every mineral can be made to acquire the density, form, and substance of each and every other mineral. The knowledge thereof is with Us in the Hidden Book.
